A Mermaid's Message, Anais Nin Quote Inspired Print


This is a reproduction print featuring a Mermaid message inspired by the Anais Nin quote - "I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living."

The original art was created with pen and ink techniques and then overlaid on digital background art. The digital background was created by fellow Etsy artist creativequbedesign @ https://www.etsy.com/shop/creativequbedesign?ref=l2-shopheader-name.

I print these at a local print shop on 8.5" x 11" matte card stock. The image is a 300 dpi high resolution jpeg printed to 8” x 10.”

The print has a slight border as it was printed (and centered) on the 8.5” x 11.” You'll receive the print only — it does not include the mat, frame or any other props shown.

Each print comes in a clear plastic bag and shipped in a photo mailer to keep from the print from getting bent.
